The objective of the design solution for this Rathgar home was to carry out a sympathetic refurbishment of the existing house and to design a modern single storey extension to upgrade the existing accommodation. The owners wished to keep the ground floor as open as possible while retaining the character of the existing house. On ground floor, the rooms to the rear face into a central courtyard which allows for dual aspect and provides much needed light and ventilation. The glazed roof over the dining area takes advantage of the south facing sunlight which invigorates the dining room area during daylight hours. The works were carried out using renewable energy sources to future-proof this as a model urban family home.
